gauze why and israel and playing out in egypt. bring us up to speed. the rebels made some advancements. >> the rebels have scored some successes. they have captured a couple of rather small but still significant military installations, one little air base, they got a tank out of it, they destroyed a couple of helicopters, destroyed another couple of tanks that was seen -- because it was very close to damascus, seen as a major victory for them. moreover, moreover they changed their strategy. their strategy of trying to go into a major city, take it, and hold it. and they get pulverized in bombing campaigns that took so much of a toll on the civilian population. going right after the military, the military centers in and doing so, they're gaining arms. and expertise. there are more people that are joining them, the syrian military still a formidable force and the rebels probably not a match for them toe to toe but gaining strength. >> we know the geography, turkey to the north, turkey considering putting missiles on the border now? >> they're asking nato to consider it. they're sending a

on right now. egypt a key player with these negotiations because they tend to negotiate with both hamas and israel. turkey has the ear of both sides and so they're involved in this as well. the president has been on the horn while he's traveling in southeast asia with turkey's prime minister, with egypt's president, with israel's prime minister. and so it is certainly possible, yes, because even though we're seeing the violence escalate, there is a lot of pressure from a number of different nations not to turn this into an all-out ground war. >> ever changing as we continue to take a live look at the pictures from gaza. thank you very much. >>> also new this morning, president obama making a landmark visit to myanmar during a trip to asia. the president now the very first sitting u.s. president to visit myanmar, also known as burma. this is a country struggling with democracy after 49 years of military rule. during a speech the president offering encouragement to the country as it transitions to democracy saying, quote, the united states of america is with you. >> this nation that's bee

is the role of egypt with its leadership. a relationship that is much closer now to hamas. is that something that the white house should be concerned about? i mean, that really does seem like really a wild card in all of this. >> suzanne, i don't think it's a wild card. you are spot on. they do need to be concerned about it. more importantly, they need to do something about it to insure that israel is able to prosecute what it needs against hamas and that egypt and the muslim brotherhood stay out of any type of direct engagement or support to what is taking place in gaza right now. that would truly inflame and kind of put into greater can i ones what's taking place in the middle east, so israel needs to breathe -- apologies. egypt needs to breathe through their nose and just stay where they are. hamas and israel are going to have to work this out, and they don't need to have other folks meddling other than to try to get them to calm down, you know, settle the situation a little bit. >> to the other story that we're following. obviously, the scandal involving the former cia director general d
